Default Taylor Swift - Lover

If she had cut four or five songs this would be excellent.

What do you think

it's as though she took Delicate and made a big chunk of this album out of that sound.

with that said, I like it a lot, minus about 5 or 6 tracks. False God is fantastic.

I have issues with about five or six too. But you could take out three and it’d be really good.

Soon You’ll Get Better had me unexpectedly in tears as I pulled into work the other day whoops

ME! Is irredeemably bad and whoever decided that should be the lead single needs help.

The Archer is perfect.

My final verdict on paper rings after much deliberation is that it’s cute and I like it.

My wifeís mom was diagnosed with ovarian cancer last year and we lost our cool on that one.

Me is terrible, had me convinced the record was going to be bad.. but better than reputation.

Nothings going to be as good as or better than 1989 though, Iím afraid.

This basically sums up my take as well. The album is SO good, probably her 2nd best behind 1989. It's miles better than Reputation, and if it were a little more concise it could possibly be her best. Me! and You Need To Calm Down are the two worst songs on the album and they were the first two singles. This follows a pattern established by Red in which the leading singles from her albums are pretty much the worst songs and generally not indicative of what the rest of the album sounds like

fantastic: Forgot That You Existed, Cruel Summer, Lover, The Man, Death By A Thousand Cuts, False God, Afterglow, Daylight

pretty good: The Archer, Miss Americana, Paper Rings, Cornelia Street, London Boy, Soon You'll Get Better

album would benefit from losing: I Think He Knows, You Need to Calm Down, Me, It's Nice To Have A Friend

And yeah my mom was verrrry sick in 2017 and nearly died (she’s good now!). If this had come out then I would be a constant blubbering mess. She really nails that feeling.

And I hate to make this all about me
But who am I supposed to talk to?
What am I supposed to do

I can pinpoint it here. That’s where I lost it.

Reputation was very mixed for me. Getaway Car and Dress and Delicate are great, but it also has some of her hands down worst songs.

I've listened to Lover probably 10-15 times all the way through now. If it's not as good as 1989, it's very close. I even came around on I Think He Knows. I would say pretty much all the songs are very good except Me and Calm Down. It's Nice To Have A Friend is not a bad song but it's boring and feels superfluous. Death By A Thousand Cuts is fucking amaaaaazing. I think the thing which most delights and surprises me about this album is that it basically represents all her past sounds, and I really did not expect to hear anything like Soon You'll Get Better on this release, especially because Reputation had even less live instruments than 1989.

I think calm down is fun!

Generally agree with your thoughts but I enjoy some of the bad songs on reputation still

Is Lover a better album than Fear Inoculum?
